The GOP Throws a Tantrum: Gen. Petraeus is Rubber- MoveOn.org is Glue!

Today Arianna Huffington has weighed in on the latest Iraq "controversy" that has the GOP up in arms. No, silly, it's not the fact that our non-military contract mercenaries are causing more trouble in Iraq (or the fact that the Iraqi government apparently doesn't have the authority to do anything about it)! It's the fact that MoveOn.org called Gen. Petraeus names! Is there nothing those insidious lefties won't do? This is just going too far! Next thing you know, MoveOn will be getting 4,000 US soldiers and countless more Iraqi civilians killed in a war for oil and corporate profiteering!

We all know how sensitive military men (and the rapidly-fading politicians who hide behind them) can get. If MoveOn.org continues being so mean, the GOP may threaten to take its ball and go tell Mommy. But that's okay- we still get to say, "Liar, liar, pants on fire!" to Bush, Petraeus, and everyone who tries to hide behind cherry-picked data and political smokescreens.
